National Geographic and Wired Win 2012 Digital Ellies


Congratulations to two of our Digital Publishing Suite customers — WIRED (Conde Nast) and National Geographic — for winning the National Magazine Awards for Digital Media (Digital Ellies) today.

Established in 1966, the National Magazine Awards are given by the American Society of Magazine Editors and honor the nation’s best magazines in design and editorial.  In the Digital Awards this year, more than 270 publications entered the competition, which was judged by 90 industry experts. This year, WIRED and National Geographic claimed the prestigious award.

WIRED took home two awards: one for Reporting, Digital Media and another in the Design, Digital Media category. National Geographic won the Tablet Edition award for three issues published in 2011: August, September, and November.

Both publishers have created highly designed and engaging digital publications using Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. In fact, four of the five finalists in the Tablet Edition category produce their apps with Digital Publishing Suite.  The winners were announced today at the MPA Digital: Swipe conference, hosted by MPA – The Association of Magazine Media.
